Covid-19 activities:

As was to be expected our gig in Switzerland was cancelled. So planning for a - possible - fall will start right now!

Like everybod else Feleboga is staying home and staying safe. But there is still a lot to do as people are imaginative in finding alternatives to meeting for sessions and concerts. The Richmond Old-time gathering in London was just held online this weekend and we managed to contribute on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/hanshinrich.thedens/posts/10156680202701017?notif_id=1586614925556657¬if_t=feedback_reaction_generic.

Every night we are playing the "Noony tune" of the day, following an initiative by Shira Kammen.

New video medley from Easter tour is up on Youtube 

Here is a little taste of our trio concert in Germany at Easter-time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6es_1cTwfwE

As usual we had a great time first playing for our friend Bjørn's birthday party in Copenhagen, then jamming with our friends, the Kannes and then playing concerts at Eiscafé Sass and Lütt Matten in Germany.

New recordings on Soundcloud 

So we made some more recordings in Oslo. Together with those from Germany the MIGHT become a CD, but in the meantime enjoy them on Soundcloud:

Recording and performing in Germany 

So we had a great time with the whole stringband in old stomping grounds. We took the boat and then drove through Denmark and performed at the Lord Nelson's Irish Pub in Brunsbüttel before rehearsing new material and making demo (and potential CD) recordings in Dithmarschen. With a simple 4 mic setup, all in the same room we focused on songs and tunes with Paul singing lead. He even made up some new lyrics. Wednesday night we played a Kulturkneipe Bornholdt in Meldorf. On the way home we stopped by our…

Performances in the spring 

In May we played for the Hordaringen dance group in Oslo while Alix led the dancers. Then we played on the Roots&Rock'n Roll stage downtown at Oslo's Music Day on June 4th before heading over to the American church in Oslo and played for another square dance there. And again people showed up, brought food and had a great time. We're hoping to repeat this soon.

Stringband @ Bluegrassaften at Buckley's Pub in Oslo 

So we are off and running as a five piece stringband!

We played at the Christmas fair of Mattias old school in December and now we performed as the first half of Buckley's Pub's Bluegrass night in downtown Oslo. It was great fun and captured on video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VW5inVegk1E

Back from summer travels 

It's been a while since we have come back from this summer's extensive travels in the US, but some summing up is certainly necessary! Feleboga would like to thank all the great people who made it possible for us to see old and make new friends and play music for them all. We started out on the Monterey peninsula and played yet another concert at the Carl Cherry Center for the Arts in Carmel where Robert Reese set us up for a mixed concert of American and Norwegian traditional music. After that we played…

Carl Cherry Center concert 

We played the Center for the fourth time now, again with a mixed program of Norwegian and Appalachian folk music. This time we attracted the local folkies of the Monterey peninsula. What fun!

Square dance at the American church in Oslo 

Last night we played at the American Lutheran Congregation in Oslo. I think it was announced as a social evening with food and dance, and our friend Paul Kirby set it up. It turned out to be a total blast. There were plenty of people and they were more than eager to dance, even if most had never ever been in a square before. Mary Seim taught waltzing, some clogging and Cajun two-step, but it was my debut calling southern squares anywhere else than the safe haven of the Swannanoa Gathering. It was just…
